Right at the end of Chemin de Bonne-Espérance, in the heart of the Faverges district, lies a little passage that connects to Chemin du Cap right above, and accesses a bit of forest and the river that peacefully flows through it.
For Lausanne’s meanderer, walking along the bucolic Chemin du Renard, from the heights of the city to the mouth of La Vuachère and the Haldimand tower, this place is the gateway to the district. A car park, dustbins and concrete: welcome to Faverges! Yet, like a medieval seafarer sailing along the coast of Africa to reach the Indian Ocean, adventurers of all horizons will discover wonders by venturing into this little-known district in Lausanne. The installation of green towers will help draw attention to this passage and convey the spirit of the district.
